Apr 19, Colombo: Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa is reportedly having one-to-one talks with the Opposition Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe, government sources say.
The meeting is now being held at the Temple Trees, the President's official residence.
The President is to appoint a Prime Minister in the next few days following the landslide victory the ruling coalition registered at the general election, the final result of which is yet to be announced after re-polling in parts of Kandy and Trincomalee districts.
The United National Party (UNP) led by Mr. Wickremasinghe is expected to win over 50 parliamentary seats while the ruling coalition is expected to receive 143 seats once the final results are announced.
